It's Tuesday, and that means it's time for another challenge at Shopping Our Stash! This week's theme is What Was I Thinking?!?! We'd like you to use something you HAD to have, but it's sooooo not "you". Maybe the latest trendy item that everyone else is using, or maybe something you liked at the time but now you have no clue why you liked it? Yeah, that. Use it.
In my world as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I am easily enabled to need all the new stuff, and in every color. I have an embarrassingly large collection of SU stuff that has never been opened, so my challenge today was to narrow it down to one or two items. I chose the Printed Petals stamp set (seriously? flowers? me?) and the pom-pom ribbon. Yes, pom-poms. I saw someone use them around the edge of a circle and I was sold ... bought it in every color ... twice.
Here's my card:
Comfort Cafe, and I layered it with Midnight Muse. If you'd like some background music, queue this one up. It's Midnight Blue by Louise Tucker, and I break into song (in my head) every time I use Midnight Muse ink.
The ribbon is Soft Suede polka dot, with the dots face-down. It covers a boo-boo. Speaking of which, the sentiment (Made For You) was stamped crooked so I saved it by stamping it again on a piece of Vanilla to make it look like I meant to do that. The button is also SU, from the new catalog. Pearls are also SU, colored with a brown Sharpie.
Now it's your turn! Go into your stash and find something you HAD to have because everyone else was getting it, but now you question your sanity. Use it on a card, then come over to Shopping Our Stash and link us up so we can see what you've made!
Thanks for stopping by!
